Great vacation home

  • 5 of 5

My family and I enjoyed our weeks stay at Lakefront Living! The home was clean and in order when we arrived late on Saturday afternoon. The game room has a window air unit...the rest of the house central air. The window unit froze up and the owners were there the next day, Sunday, with a brand new replacement unit. They installed it and there were no other issues the rest of the week. We had 5 children with us who had a blast. They swam, fished, rode the paddle boat and canoe. While indoors the game room was filled with plenty for them to do. They were never bored. Should we decide to do this type vacation again we would definitely consider returning to this rental home.

March stay

  • 5 of 5

Very clean and wonderful setting. We cooked out on a fantastic grill and sat by a nice fire every night. Owners were very easy to work with and were very easy to get into contact with.

Beautiful views

  • 4 of 5

We truly enjoyed our stay, the home is clean, owners were very nice and accommodating. My children loved the paddle boat and canoe. Coffee in the morning on Lake is peaceful. The only reason I didn't do 5 stars is because the beds are in need of repair/mattresses, they are very uncomfortable. The master bed sits at an angle and you slide to the end of the bed all night. Other than that I highly recommend this home.

Some good, some not so good

  • 2 of 5

Good things first- Deanna was very accommodating and pleasant with us. Our weekend was a family get together, with some of us traveling long distances. Deanna allowed my sister to go into the house early to set up, then allowed us in very early the first day of the rental, after a red-eye flight with an infant, which we really appreciated. The dock and beach area, with the hammock, gazebo, sand, paddle boat and canoe, are terrific. We thoroughly enjoyed that area. The kitchen was nicely updated and the living room was spacious. We stayed outside because it was nice out, but there is a great game room upstairs that I'm sure would be fun. The workout equipment was a thoughtful feature, too.

Not so good - we lost our security deposit, and I have to admit I was not paying close enough attention to the online contract. Apparently Deanna's family suffers from severe allergies. Family members who did not stay the night brought dogs with them while we were there. I understand the reasons for the deposit and forfeiting it. That being said, I think the hefty cleaning fee and the security deposit together are pretty excessive, looking at the overall costs. I suggest that the listing include something more prominent about the severe allergies and losing the large security deposit. Other not so good things - 1) there is a full bathroom actually in the kitchen, which we found awkward and uncomfortable. You literally step out of the bathroom and into the kitchen; 2) it is advertised as a 3 bedroom house. It is really a 2 bedroom with a loft area used for sleeping. The description in the listing is accurate, but, the quick info and search list it as a 3 bedroom. Again, I would suggest more clarity. Maybe something like "2 bedrooms plus loft area"; 3) the outside tiki bar area is a great feature, but really needs some work. There are some electrical wires and outlets that are downright scary-looking. If the neon sign is not going to be repaired, take it down or replace it. Deep clean the grill and de-clutter the area. The fire pit is really nice, though; 4) there is a nice deck with a hot tub, which we did not use. The cover on the hot tub was torn plastic, so it did not look very inviting.

All in all, even if there had not been the security deposit issue, we would not rent this property again. It was fine for our quick weekend, but I would have been dissatisfied if we had rented for a longer time.

Owner's Response: Since I live next door to the rental home, we saw the dogs in the yard every day. You say no dogs stayed overnight, but the fact that the big one was barking at 9am on the day you left, tells a different story. However, whether they stayed the night or not is irrelevant. No dogs were allowed. Period. It is in the listing. NO PETS ALLOWED, or you lose your deposit. As for the "hefty cleaning fee", you were aware of all fees before you booked the home. As I told you before, the security deposit was not a cleaning fee, it was a fine, for breaking the rules of the home. We only keep it if you bring pets or smoke, that's it. Pretty self-explanatory. No explanation necessary. I have no need to list anything about allergies. Rules are rules. You agreed to them, and chose not to follow them. As for the bedrooms, I feel that I explained the layout very well in the listing. When renting a home, you should read the listing thoroughly, to make sure its a good fit for you and your family. The neon sign must've been broken by a falling branch, since the patio was covered in small sticks. That has been taken care of. The hot tub, which we do not put in the listing, is out of order. That information was included under house rules in the rental agreement. I recommend reading rental listings more thoroughly, so as to not cause such confusion in the future.

Not up to expectations

  • 3 of 5

The kitchen is lovely, the backyard and boats were great, as was the fire pit. However, the house coud have been cleaner and the beds more comfortable. The house looked as though it had not been dusted recently, the bath mats did not look fresh, and the toilet seat was broken. The beds were so uncomtable that some members of our party slept in the recliners in the family room. It wouldn't take much for this property to be truly outstanding because it has a lot of potential.

Owner's Response: I am truly sorry that the house wasn't up to your expectations. Had you let us know, the issues would have been addressed. I assure you, the home had been dusted and cleaned thoroughly , hours before you arrived. As for the toilet seat, it wasn't broken, just a loose bolt, which has been taken care of. I'm sorry about the beds, we've never had a complaint before, so I guess everyone's comfort level is different. Again, I'm sorry you were disappointed.
